"Make one's skin crawl" nghĩa là gì?

'Make one's skin crawl' = make one's flesh crawl nghĩa là cái gì đó khiến bạn/ai rất sợ hãi hoặc kinh tởm (to be very frightening or disgusting); sởn gai ốc, nổi da gà.

Ví dụ
Reasons “skinny” and “bikini body” make my skin crawl.

References to Pittsburgh being a blue-collar town make my skin crawl. It’s some sort of urban myth, or maybe suburban myth because that’s where everyone my age has moved.

"There's a stigma attached to pop music, like it's a taboo word. It used to make my skin crawl when people said it and I'd say, 'I'm not a pop star! I want to be a respected musician!' But I think people have changed the way they think about it.

"After a day looking after our four-year-old twins, Pepper and Cherry, three-year-old Lola and nine-month-old Jasper, I can honestly say nothing is less appealing than being pawed by my other half," Halfpenny writes. "Indeed, even Sam’s touch — which I used to long for when we first got together six years ago — can make my skin crawl."

Tạo thu nhập thụ động bằng cách bán bánh mì vỉa hè

khuyến mãi kèm theo là được xem... ngực cô chủ quán hoặc múa thoát y, miễn phí, nhưng có lấy "tiền ủng hộ" :)

A woman once dubbed the 'hot dog hooker' is back at it again... she now has a sign in her front yard offering topless lap dances (múa thoát y trong lòng khách) on her swing (xích đu).

Catherine Scalia was busted (bắt giữ) in 2012 on misdemeanor (hạnh kiểm xấu, tội nhẹ) prostitution (làm đĩ, điếm) charges after propositioning an undercover police officer (cảnh sát chìm) inside her hot dog truck (xe bán bánh mì).

“This is what I love to do, sell hot dogs and show off what I got a little bit. If you got it, flaunt it (khoe khoang, phô trương), that’s what I say," Scalia said after the 2012 bust.

Now, she’s offering lap dances... for free... but she'll accept donations (tiền ủng hộ, tiền từ thiện).

Scalia says what she is doing is legal but police say that she's violating a village zoning ordinance (sắc lệnh, pháp lệnh) and if her sign does not come down a summons will be issued under the adult entertainment-cabaret (múa hát, giúp vui trong các tiệm ăn, quán rượu) law.
